Innovation News (iNews) was a project of the Open Publishing Lab (OPL) at the Rochester Institute of Technology. iNews was a virtually instantaneous, cross media newspaper platform to document live events. iNews enabled reporters and photographers to submit content from the field, giving editors the opportunity to quickly edit content for the web, and to flow it into XML based page layout programs.
The Open Publishing Lab was a unique, cross campus effort. Based in RIT’s School of Media Sciences, the OPL created a space where a diverse team of faculty and students from across the campus collaborated in creating the next generation of publishing platforms.
